Cover Group


The group platform can create a cover that combines several cover entities into one.

To enable Cover Groups in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
cover:
  - platform: group
    entities:
      - cover.hall_window
      - cover.living_room_window

Configuration Variables

entities string | list Required

List of all cover entities you want to control.

name string (Optional, default: Cover Group)

Name to use in the frontend.

unique_id string (Optional)

An ID that uniquely identifies this cover group. If two covers have the same unique ID, Home Assistant will raise an error.

Functionality

It works best if you group covers with the same supported features together (like support for open/close/stop/position/tilt controls), but is not limited to it. In case you have bundled covers with different features together, the controls will only affect those covers that support the actions.
